2. aim setting

1) Goal setting by linkage (published in the second half of NOC)

*Linkage has the role of connecting NANDA (diagnosis) and NOC (results).
・Self-care: excretion, behavior, cleanliness
・Ostomy self-care

・It is possible to prepare a living environment that makes use of the remaining functions.
・It is possible to incorporate lifestyle rehabilitation to maintain ADL.

*Nurse goals include:

・Prepare self-help tools suitable for ADLs and disabilities to maintain excretion self-care.
– Prepare an environment for lack of continence healthcare due to declining cognitive function.
・Support the acquisition of stoma management methods.
・Intervene according to the type of incontinence when the motivation is decreased due to incontinence.
